This article studies the membership-function-dependent (MFD) stability and positivity analysis of positive interval type-2 (IT2) Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy fault-tolerant control systems under the event-triggered control framework. Considering the fact that parameter uncertainties may exist in nonlinear plants, the IT2 T-S fuzzy model as an effective mathematical tool is employed to approximately express a complex positive system with nonlinearities and uncertainties. In order to save communication resources and improve the security of system operation, an event-triggered fault-tolerant (ETFT) control strategy is then designed based on the imperfectly premise matching concept. In addition, for capturing positivity characteristic and matching with the linear copositive Lyapunov function, a novel event-triggered condition in the 1-norm rather than in the 2-norm is developed to control the positive IT2 T-S fuzzy systems. Thereinto, the nonconvex problem as the first obstacle is required to be cleared since feasible solutions usually cannot be obtained based on the nonconvex conditions. For dealing with this problem, a valid approach is presented to conduct convexification with the help of a user-chosen constant vector. Besides, because of event-triggered action, the inherent mismatched issue of the premise variables of the fuzzy model and the ones of the fuzzy controller is encountered. Fortunately, the advanced MFD analysis, which is capable of bringing the information contained in the membership functions into the stability and positivity conditions, provides an effective strategy to remove this barrier. Consequently, relaxed results that can accomplish the stability and positivity for wider positive systems are developed and displayed in sum-of-squares form. Detailed simulation results are given to clarify the effectiveness of the designed ETFT control method.
